How To Bet On The NFL

Betting on the NFL has never been easier and there has never been more markets to choose from, but if you are a newcomer to betting on the National Football League here is a guide to everything you need to know.

We have come a long way from the days when the bookmakers offered a handful of betting markets for NFL games. No longer are you restricted to traditional markets such as Match Winner, First Touchdown Scorer and Anytime Touchdown Scorer, you now have a massive selection of betting markets to choose from every single week. And betting markets are not the only things you can sink your teeth into, because bookies are offering more and more betting promotions from the NFL - you can claim special price boosts and also place bets that come with a spot of insurance via money back promotions.

Here we run down some of our favourite NFL betting markets and the bookmaker offers…

Spread Betting

Ever wanted to back a team to win but think their odds are far too short? Spread betting offers you the chance to back a favourite at bigger odds, while you can also get even larger odds if you are looking to back an underdog.

Spread betting could not be any simpler. The bookmaker will give the favourite a fictional handicap and the underdog a fictional head start. So, for example, if New England were favourites for the game against Philadelphia, the bookies could give the Patriots a -5.5 handicap with the Eagles +5.5. At the end of the game, depending on which bet you placed, you would either knock 5.5 points off New England’s total or add 5.5 to Philadelphia’s total. If your team still wins the game after this adjustment, your bet would be a winner. For example, if you backed the Patriots -5.5 and they won 20-14, they would still be 14.5-14 winners once the handicap was taken off so your bet would be a winner. If they won 19-14, after the 5.5 points were removed they would be 13.5-14 losers, which means your bet loses. If you backed Philadelphia +5.5 and they lost 20-15, you would be a winner because the Eagles would be 20.5-20 winners once you add those 5.5 points on.

The bookmakers offer Spread Betting for every single game and there will always be a variety of handicaps to choose from. Usually it is a case that the bigger the spread, the bigger the price so for those games where one side is a massive favourite, you may end up having to back them to win by a large margin in order to land a decent return.

Player Prop Betting

We all know that American sports are very stats-driven and that makes them perfect for betting on because you can always get the numbers you need before placing your bets. Is a dominant running back coming up against a defense that is terrible against the run? Is a quarterback coming up a dreadful secondary that struggles to defend against the pass?

The stats will always be there to tell you whether or not a player is going to have a big day. And that brings me to Player Prop Betting, which has become increasingly popular over the years. No longer are you restricted to betting on the outcome of an actual game, you can now bet on how individual players will perform during the game. From how many yards a quarterback will pass for to how many yards a running back will rack up on the ground. From how many yards a receiver will notch to how many all-purpose yards that durable back will record, you will have plenty of options for every single game.

For example, when the New England Patriots play the Philadelphia Eagles the bookmakers will offer you the chance to predict how many receiving yards tight end Rob Gronkowski will rack up. Usually this will be done in an Over/Under format with the bookie setting a benchmark, ie. it could be plus or minus 75.5 yards. So if you back Gronkowski +75.5 yards your bet will be a winner if he racks up for 76 yards or more receiving, and if you back Gronkowski -75.5 yards and he records 75 receiving yards or less, you will be a winner.

Over/Under Betting

In Player Prop Betting you got an example of Over/Under Betting. Well, Over/Under betting is not just restricted to the players because you can also bet on markets like Total Points, First-Half Points, Second-Half Points etc.  The bookmakers will offer you a host of options to choose from, it just depends on how many points you expect to see in a game. Are two great defenses going to be on show? If so, go for a low total. Are two incredible offenses going to keep the scoreboard staff busy? Go high.

For example, when the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints went head-to-head in 2015 it was inevitable that the two high-powered offenses would rack up the points against two of the poorest defenses in the NFL. Prior to the game the bookies may have offered odds on such points totals as 64.5, 78.5 and 89.5, with punters given the opportunity to go over or under. Between them the Saints racked up 101 points so if you had backed them for +89.5 Total Points you would have been a winner. And of course, if you had gone Under 78.5 Total Points your bet would have been a loser. Over-Under Betting is a great way to make a profit when betting on the NFL.

NFL Promotions

The growth of the NFL’s popularity has led to bookmakers offering more and more markets and more and more betting promotions. Each week the leading firms offer its customers price boosts, cashback promotions and accumulator bonuses, and here are some of our favourites…

Enhanced Wincasts – Not content with simply backing a player to score a touchdown or simply backing a team to win? You can now place a single bet on both happening and you could do it at an enhanced price. Each week William Hill offer special enhanced wincasts, selecting one man from each team to score a touchdown as his team run out winners, and that means you could give your winnings a shot in the arm if, for example, Rob Gronkowski scored a TD in a New England victory.

Accumulator Offers – Accumulator betting is a great way to land a big return when betting on the NFL, and it is also a method of betting that can come with a spot of insurance. Some bookmakers offer bonuses on winning NFL accumulator/parlay bets, while others offer a spot on insurance in the form of cashback promotions that see them refund losing stakes if one leg of your NFL accumulator/parley bet lets you down.
